*Push notifications are an available feature for iOS only for an additional $5 a month. This feature can be opted into during the completion of the build forms for your iOS app within your Libsyn account. Push notifications allow you to send out new episode alerts as well as text and link alerts to your audience’s iOS device if enabled.
Our app is supported in all of the following markets. You may opt into all or one of them, we do not require you to have an app in every market we offer, there are additional fees required to be in both iOS and Google Play app stores.
How it Works
Sign up for an advanced 400, advanced 800 or advanced 1500 plan and be sure to add the Custom Mobile App option with the $10 monthly adder.
Set-up your iOS and Google Play developer accounts per our instructions if you would like us to submit to those markets.
Log into your account and complete the build forms for each app. We require a set of graphics and submission details in order to submit.
After your developer accounts are created and the build forms complete it typically takes 3 to 4 weeks for all your apps to be available in the markets.
Handpick what content is available on individual apps easily within Libsyn as a part of your regular publishing workflow.
Updates & Reporting
Standard app updates and features are included and app download reporting can be viewed at any time from your developer accounts.
